In my last post about the Monotype piston rod I am making to provide a lengthened pump stroke about the only work completed was the ends of the piece.
Since that time I have proceeded through the following stages:
The next step is to drill and tap the top hole for the handle to screw into. The drilling will be done on the drill press and tapping by hand. If there is any of the nub left after drilling and tapping I will use a countersink on the drill press to remove it.
